Ben Harris has been somewhat of a creative icon in magic for along time. I fell in love with his work when I found a book of his called Off the Wall about 10 years ago. His Genii issue is still one of my most read back issues because it seems every time I read it I tend to feel inspired.

His new donwload, released as part of the Backstory Project, is called Through the Universe-Backwards. It is a color changing deck routine that leaves everything completely examinable at the end of the effect. There are no gimmicks per say, but the routine is structured so that it is impossible to see the ending coming or back track the effect. I am a big advocate of magic happening as part of strong theatrical moment, as opposed to the "Look, watch" presentational variety, so the presentation in this effect is what sold it all for me.

Strong magic, easy on sleight of hand and a presentation that holds it all together. A steal for 10 dollars. Even more so if you join the Backstory project that has already more than paid for itself for me.

Hi Cameron,

I think you'll appreciate the volume of magical effect achieved through a very direct and uncluttered handling. I look forward to your feedback. Peter Duffie really enjoyed it!

Hi Fonda,

I'm glad you are enjoying. Email me at ben@wowbound.com and I'll send you a sample pack to explore, with compliments.

Cheers

Yes, this is first rate. The presentation is rich in content, and the effect is as clear and clean as can be. This is one of the best colour changing deck routines I have seen.

REVIEW: Through the Universe-Backwards by Ben Harris

Folks,

Ben Harris has done it again, only this time a slighty different effect from the Backstory Project.

This is perhaps the best method for a color changing deck I have seen ever!!!

You will use this!!!

I am very heavy into mentalism, but this is something I will have with me all the time and in my repertoire.

This is just so impossible and incredible, I have yet to try it, as I am tweaking out methods and re-reading everything through, but I will post more once I give it a go at a later time, once I feel adequate enough to perform it.

I love this!!!!!

Ben Harris has become ever since CROSSROADS by favorite inventor of outstanding magic and mentalism......

Buy this, you wont regret it!!

Minimal sleight of hand is required, and maybe a beginner could do the moves, but you must know some pretty standard moves, plus Ben teaches a new move as well which is just great........

BRAVO BEN..........you did it again...........i await your next invention!!!

This is decent although I wouldn't rank this in my top 3 color changing deck routines. I think the handling choice for the selection process is odd and unnatural but this can easily be modified. Overall, I think there are much cleaner and more logical routines if you are in the market for this type of routine.
